California is home to beautiful, vibrant weather. More than ever, residents and tourists are enjoying nature by riding electric scooters and push scooters. Scooters are more accessible than ever in large cities as companies are making them readily available to the public, including the greater California area. We have all seen them, and they come in a variety of colors and brands such as Bird, Lime, Scoot, Jump (owned by Uber) Lyft, Spin, Sherpa & Bolt. Although these scooters can be cost efficient and convenient by means of avoiding traffic, they can also be hazardous.
They are also sometimes referred to as “dockless scooters,” meaning they have multiple locations throughout a city or town where they can be dropped off and picked up.
Like cyclists, e-scooter riders understand the need to look out for their own safety. Some accidents however are not the rider’s fault and is caused by negligent automobile drivers. Across America, there are reports of more scooter riders sustaining injuries that are no fault of their own.
If you suffered a serious injury or your loved one was killed in a scooter accident, a lawyer experienced in personal injury cases can be your best resource.
